Good morning ladies!  Relatively smooth morning, except for that pesky 3 year old crawing into our bed at 4:30 after having an accident in her bed. :smileysad:  I have a bunch of projects I am working on today, most likely a nap at lunch time.  We have a family bbq at Emma's school tonight, I can't make it to the open house at 5:00, but the cook out starts at 6, there is also a cheerleading booster club meeting tonight, I really should go to one or the other, but I really don't feel like going to either.  If anything, I'll attend the BBQ, or if DH is home at a decent time I'll play tag in with him.  Jordyn has to work tonight, I can't quite keep track of her schedule anymore, she gets out of school early at 2:05 on "A" days, she has practices Monday and Wednesday evenings I think, works before practices on those days and all evening on Tuesdays, and I think there is a Thursday night work thrown in there, but maybe after football season ends?  I don't know, I'm glad she can keep it all straight!  Depending on if we go to the BBQ or not will dictate what we have for dinner.

Have a great day!

Yep, rolling is a really good way to put it.  That was this morning for us.  one by one they crawled out of bed like a rock rolling down a hill catching momentum.  Matthew seemed rested, hope he doesn't fall alseep in Algebra today.  Not his last class but probably is most boring class for him.  Biology is his last but he is stimulated in there and loves it too much to fall asleep.  

Matthew tried eating breakfast to keep his body going since he had a lack of sleep.  That didn't work out to well since he allows textures and things to bother him so up it came about half an hour later.  The girls were in a good mood.  Out the door on time.  Katie was back into her basketball shorts and a t-shirt today.  A complete opposite of how she was dressed yesterday.  LOL  

Before the girls bus came it was time for me to take Matthew.  I hate leaving them standing in the driveway but I didn't have a choice.  This was the first time I took Matthew to school.  Car line was easy.  I have been afraid of that.  LOL  They have two and not knowing which one to use and what works better for Matthew left me avoiding the carline.  

I am planning to clean my floors.  Run get some carpet cleaner spray and clean a few stains on my carpet here in my family room.  I need to finish washing Natalie's sheets and blankets.  Stress obviously causes her to wet the bed.  Tonight we have a College and Career Fair at Matthew's HS right after school.  Then I need to go coach volleyball practice.  Not looking forward to that.  Our girls were getting mad at each other on Saturday instead of being supportive and things went down hill.  I have to deal with that and wish I didn't have to.  

Dinner will be steaks cooked on the grill and baked potatoes.

I'm feeling frazzled today.  I think it is all catching up with me- the move, new schedule, starting school, DH being gone so much ( 3 weeks out of the last 4), taking over his household repsonsibilites as well as mine, plumbing issues, battling the mice under the kitchen sink, getting ready for vacation, and dealing with the ILs.  I have listed everything that needs to be done before we leave on the office whiteboard and while the list is overwhelmeing, it is out of my head.  In a bit I will begin to tackle it.

Lots for me to do.  Zeph has a bit of schoolwork to wrap up and he offered to help with the list.  Most of it I need to do, but it he is willing to take over more regular chores for the next few days, that's a help.

Dinner is meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and grilled asparagus.

Hello everyone! It was a tiring day at work. Most of the class is great, except for one student who is the most challenging kid I've ever worked with. He is exhausting to all of us.

After work, I ran a bunch of errands and exercised

Kayleigh had a regular school day, did decently on her first AP chem quiz and had art club after school.  Ian said that he had a great day at school,  his first two periods every other day are art and tech, so he is very happy on those days.

Tonight, Ian and Dh are going to Boy Scouts. Kayleigh and I will stay home, I hope to clean the master bath, then we might order her senior pictures and do a few other odds and ends.  We are having a grilled chicken salad for dinner
